Internet Usage Statistics – So I guess this internet thing isn’t going anywhere. I’ve got a weakness for infographics and enjoyed the content contained in this one. Did you know that 20 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute?

Gendercide – Dr. Mohler writes about gendercide. “The reality has been known for years now, though the Western media have generally resisted any direct coverage of the horror. That changed this week when The Economist published its stunning cover story — ‘Gendercide — What Happened to 100 Million Baby Girls?’ In many nations of the world, there is an all-out war on baby girls. In 1990, economist Amartya Sen estimated that 100 million baby girls were missing — sacrificed by parents who desired a son.

MLBTradeRumors – My one indispensible baseball site just got a great overhaul. I know you are as excited as I am that baseball season is about to begin again.

    We Who Are So Ordinary
